Krystle Moore

“Moody skies are one of my favourites. There’s so much going on, so much color.”

November 29, 2021 | | Artist in Residence

Alton painter Krystle Moore enjoys a clear cerulean sky as much as anyone, but inspiration strikes when puffs of cumulus and stratus roll in. “Clouds reflect human emotions,” says Krystle, who has degrees in visual arts and art history and who has worked in the curatorial department at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. “Moody skies are one of my favourites. There’s so much going on, so much color.” While her skyscapes usually soar above the countryside she paints en plein air or from photos – for instance, a snapshot taken on the side of the road as a snowstorm brewed became “Falling Snow” – some edge into abstract cloudscapes that could be anywhere. “I hope people find a connection whether they live here or not.” Krystle’s work is at Noodle Gallery, The Birch Shoppe and Element Inspired. krystlemoorepaintings.ca
